As the receiving RN, you receive the nursing report organized in the SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) format for Mr. Damon Patel, a 62-year-old who transferred from the intensive care unit to the post-surgical unit following an abdominal aortic repair performed two days ago.
Review the recommendation section of Mr. Patel's SBAR report and then using the Nursing Process Overview and information from your textbooks, develop a Nursing Care Plan for the above patient. Your Nursing Care Plan (NCP) must include:
One (1) priority nursing diagnostic statement (must be an actual nursing diagnosis) based on the information presented in the
Recommendation section of the SBAR report.
One (1) measurable patient outcome.
Four (4) nursing interventions that will help the patient achieve the desired outcome.
Only two (2) of the four (4) interventions can be assessments (collecting data).
At least two (2) of the four (4) interventions must be actions that the nurse will take to move the patient toward the outcome.
Identify criteria that will be used to establish the patient outcome has been met.
Complete your nursing care plan using the Nursing Care Plan Form (you must save the file to your computer before completing the form). When you're ready to submit your work, click Browse My Computer and find your file. Once you've located your file click Open and, if successful, the file name will appear under the Attached files heading. Scroll to the bottom of the page, click Submit and you're done.
